10th Feb 2017 | Premier League
Sunderland v Southampton Preview
Southampton have lost six of their last seven in the league and have fewer points on their travels than Sunderland do at home.
Just when Sunderland looked doomed they go and pull out a 4-0 win against one of their relegation revivals. It just shows there’s going to be plenty of twists and turns during the run-in, yet the bookmakers have still written off David Moyes and his men.
Sunderland have gained 12 points at home this season more than Southampton’s 9 on their travels yet the market is still swayed by league position.
Southampton have actually lost six of their last seven Premier League games and a trip to the EFL Cup final has papered over the cracks. Defeats against Burnley, Swansea and West Ham are poor results and none of these teams (apart from maybe West Ham) are significantly better than Sunderland. A home win at 9/5 (BetVictor) in the ‘draw no bet’ market is a steal.
